All I can say is that Sherbourn is amazing! My 7010A never leaves me wanting anything but more time with it. Musically it is tremendous also. No comparison to Rotel. I gladly gave up an Anthem system for it.

I recommend that you keep your Rotel and get a high quality 2-ch amp. Then run your music without the Receiver. You'll get the best of both worlds, HT and 2-ch music.
I switched from a 2-ch setup to a 7.1 a couple of years ago. It was good for movies but I never liked the music through that system. So I got a 2-ch preamp and a power amp, and run my CDP directly to the preamp. My preamp has a HT-bypass mode for movies.
